– GTA Photography Camper 2017
- Learn important camera settings to freeze & blur motion
- Find out how to get the timing right and shoot a sharp image
- Have fun with a variety of unique and dynamic demos!
The world is full of movement but how do you properly capture it? Learn camera settings to ensure you never miss a shot and that every image comes out sharp.
Practice Makes Perfect
We’ve designed a whole week of dynamic demos to get you energized to shoot motion! Practice your skills both in studio and out on location by freezing action or doing long exposures of the city.
Freeze and Blur
Action photography is not just about freezing motion but includes creatively blurring as well. Compare the two different effects on your subjects to see which one better tells your story.
